"Reminiscent of the work of Annie Dillard and others who have combined their observations of the natural world with philosophical reflections " —Publishers Weekly
"Graceful meditations on nature an altogether satisfying collection by a gifted interpreter of the natural world." —Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Wild Comfort: The Solace of Nature
"Kathleen Dean Moore is a writer whose senses, heart, generosity, and intellect open in every direction. This book, filled with knowledge of the natural and human worlds, is a superb naturalist's handbook. It is also a praise book: an illuminated manuscript whose life overspills its own borders. In its grounded wisdoms, humility, curiosity, and in the kaleidoscope beauty of its descriptions, Wild Comfort reminds how to see, how to sing; how to welcome, with equal gravity and grace, whatever asks entrance into our lives. It is destined to become a classic."—Jane Hirshfield
"What nature gives, it takes away. Kathleen Dean Moore feels the ache of this truth in her bones. And yet in spite of grieving over the death of friends, the extinction of species, and the tattering of Earth's web, she finds comfort in natural and human creations, in symphonies and snakes, in science and stars, in the beauty constantly upwelling from the mystery we call life. This book itself is such a consoling creation, a cause for gratitude and joy." —Scott Russell Sanders, author of A Private History of Awe
"Moore's descriptions are powerfully visceral. Readers will find that the world seems larger, wilder, and yet safer than they had thought—more beautiful and more like home."—Book Page
"This collection of essays, reveries, and meditations interweaves keen observations of the natural world with descriptions of wilderness travel, conversations, stories, and philosophical musings. It is easy to imagine Moore lying next to Plato, intensely focused and observant, pointing out the natural world's soothing and transformative miracles. She excels at it."—The Oregonian
Praise for Riverwalking: Reflections on Moving Water
"A smart, compassionate, and wise meditation on living in place."—Terry Tempest Williams

I bought another copy for a friend. It is so rare and difficult for a book to get the science and situation right and then start to discuss moral clarity. Kathleen Dean Moore addresses the important aspects of the problem. Some of her statements are gems.
